Monday Mondy Monday

Starting next week (15th of May) the forum will be closed on Mondays, you will be unable to access the forum on that day! (All other informational sites such as the wiki will remain open!)

This is a feature that has existed on my personal site for a while and I think its time to expand here for the same reasons:

My site closes on mondays as a reminder that nothing lasts forever and its important to step back, slow down and appreciate the time we have - so much of the web tries to make us feel like we always have to be online and connected, and I wanted to do the opposite!

Please enjoy your Mondays and return refreshed on Tuesdays  :ha:

This is an odd thing to be excited about, but I was waiting for this to happen! Yay!

This is a super interesting concept!! Although I know that, like your site, I'm going to have the strongest desire ever to visit the forum, but then it turns out to be Monday LOL!

I think it's an interesting idea, but... Not great for a forum :ohdear:

I had some information I wanted to look up in a thread here yesterday, but couldn't access it.
I suppose it wasn't anything important, and this is no Serious Business forum, but it just feels weird to be arbitrarily restricted like this.

Well, it is unique, and does get you to take a break... And I do suppose it has drawn me back to the forum  :ok:

I would encourage everyone to use the print topic button to print out important threads for later review!

Also personally, I think it's a good reminder that we should be editing the wiki a bit more often. :ha:

I'm also in the camp that really doesn't understand this from a philosophical standpoint. I totally understand giving the mods a break, in which case I would suggest making the forums read-only but accessible. There's valuable information and conversations here that doesn't necessarily need to be reproduced on the wiki or printed. The responsible thing to do would be to keep information freely available rather than introducing arbitrary barriers.

I think it's a matter of what the goal of the forum is; if the goal was to provide information then I would definitely agree with you. However! Providing information has never been the goal of this forum (It wouldn't look the way it does it that was the case) - this forum is meant to be a fantasy forum or a forum that feels like what you might imagine a forum was like in a dream of the web being new and fresh. Dreams exist in the unknown and the unknown exists behind impassable barriers - without those barriers, the forum would be more functional, but it would lose its soul :notgood:

While I understand and respect where you're coming from, I believe your forum has grown beyond your original vision. It's now a fairly large and vibrant community. It seems possible (to me) to keep the fantasy vibe (and soul) without restrictions. While this doesn't apply to me, what if some people rely on these forums to boost their mood and bring happiness to their lives? Everyone's circumstance is different and they may not have a pleasant experience away from this fantasy world you've built.

At the very least, don't you think it might be good to poll the community to see how they feel rather than imposing limitations based on your own personal beliefs? Don't get me wrong, I love what you've done with this place and it has fostered a lively and friendly community. But, I wonder if it's grown to a point where blocking access does more harm than good?

It would be interesting to see how everyone feels about that. Either way, thanks for all you've done and continue to do!  :cheesy:

After some additional contemplation about my last response, I just want to make sure you know I'm only giving constructive feedback. I certainly don't claim to know what's best for anyone or even your own creation. Admittedly, I'm new here and just trying to offer another point of view.  :smile:

Ultimately, it's your site and I trust you'll continue to make it better for everyone.  :4u:
